The Aftershave Balm

As any dapper gent knows, being well-groomed is obligatory. But regular shaving can wreak havoc on your skin. Follow your shave with a dash of Weleda’s gentle and cooling Aftershave Balm. Packed with chamomile, soothing aloe vera gel and organic jojoba and coconut oils, it hydrates, protects and soothes post-shave. The fresh, subtle fragrance makes it, and the wearer, irresistible too.

The Face Cream

With a tendency to be thicker and often oilier, men’s skin needs just as much care as women’s. Kiehl’s Facial Fuel is a must for an energised complexion. The vitamin and caffeine-enriched, non-oily formula instantly boosts skin’s hydration levels and helps control shine throughout the day. Helping create a more awake appearance, it’s a firm favourite for a reason.

The Watch

Tardiness is never an option for the modern gentleman, so ensure you’re never unfashionably late with a refined timepiece. The very essence of understatement and good taste, IWC’s Portofino is the accessory you can’t live without. Simple and classic in design, the old adage ‘less is more’ has never rung truer.

The Shoes

Give outfits an instant hit of cool with a high-low pairing of sartorial tailoring and laidback footwear. Po-Zu’s lace-up desert boot, the Dez 2 in brown is the perfect combination of smart and casual at the same time. Worn with suit trousers or chinos, it will easily take you from boardroom to weekend casual.

The Bag

When it comes to accessories, forget your trusty backpack and opt for a little more grown-up flair. Offering the perfect compromise between office-ready and off-duty slick, Passavant and Lee’s No. 25 Attaché will add instant finesse to any look. Featuring a solid outer shell of aircraft grade aluminium and a soft, suede interior, simply sling over the shoulder or carry as a stand-alone briefcase dependent on the occasion.
